Symetix Launches High-Capacity Size Grader for Tablets

March 23, 2011

The machine can remove broken tablets and fragments, at production rates of up to 1,000,000 tablets/hr.

The new Impulse/P high-capacity size grader for tablets features a wider footprint and a new screen design on the decks to effectively remove broken tablets and fragments, at production rates of up to 1,000,000 tablets/hr.

Like the Impulse/P grader for soft gel capsules, the new Impulse/P for tablets is designed to maximize product quality, while reducing labor costs. “The Impulse/P size grader for tablets allows high-speed fillers to run at maximum efficiency by minimizing packages that are rejected because they contain broken tablets,” says Jon Donovan, product manager for Symetix (Walla Walla, WA).

The grader can be configured as either a two- or three-deck system. With the two-deck system, the upper deck removes broken tablets and fragments, while the lower deck recovers usable tablets. The three-deck system achieves the same results, in addition to removing twins.
